This is a review of the Lynx Defense discreet rifle bag known as, “The Bronx.” It’s designed for a 16″ AR-15 rifle fully assembled and avoids giving anyone the impression “I’ve got a gun!.” The bag is high quality and completely made in the USA using American-sourced materials. So what do I think about it?
HI, I’M MATT.
I’m the founder of The Everyday Marksman.
I’ve always been an outdoors fanatic and avid shooting enthusiast. As a former military officer and master instructor, I want to bring a different perspective to the firearms and outdoors communities. It’s not just about high-speed shooting and tactics, but the sum of your ability.
I created The Everyday Marksman to teach tactical skills to everyday people seeking a more adventurous life.

In this episode of the Everyday Marksman, I’m talking to Alex Sansone, better known as The Suited Shootist and operator of the blog and YouTube channel under the same name. Alex is a bit different than most of the other guests I’ve had on the show because he doesn’t have the same military or high-level competition background as others. He’s a regular citizen who happens to care about protecting himself and his family while looking good doing it.
This is a short post today, as it’s more of a musing than anything. I wanted to touch upon something that I recently came across while reading John West’s Fry the Brain. This is a history about a group of French citizens who ground an enemy’s army to a halt with their marksmanship prowess.
I’ve been thinking a lot about the idea of “red teaming.” If you aren’t familiar, this is where you think deeply about how you would plan to defeat yourself if you were the bad guy. While thinking about my own gaps, I realized one of the biggest was a lack of information about my surrounding area. I mean, I know a lot about where I live, but I’d never approached it like a military intelligence analyst. What does that look like?
This episode is an off-the-cuff ask me anything (AMA). I gathered questions from social media as well as the discord server and opened the flood gates. Allison also joins me again to help dig into questions abut gear, shooting, and some fun stuff.
This post continues our look at load carriage by focusing on more traditional load bearing equipment. Before we get into my personal setups, I want to talk a little bit about how load carrying gear evolved over time.
